I am happy to be at Smith for a third year as Speech-Language Pathologist. My role is to support students with speech and language needs (ex. difficulty pronouncing sounds and words, using and understanding grammar, sentence structure, and vocabulary, and working on social skills). I work closely with teachers, staff, and students to support in this area. This year I will be in the building on Tuesdays, Wednesday, and Thursdays. Personally, my family moved to Denver two years ago from the Midwest. I’ve lived in Nebraska, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana. Having visited Colorado from an early age, it’s a joy to finally live here and enjoy these “backyard mountains.” We try to get to the mountains any chance we can. We also enjoy traveling throughout the country and internationally when we get the chance.
